Mark VII rEAR C/A's

Anyone using these? If so, what's the verdict?

The only reason I'm interested is rubber bushings are not available. I'm not looking for a suspension upgrade but this may be the only game in town.

Rubber is available, just harder to find and therefore more expensive. See thread http://thelincolnmarkviiclub.org/phpBB3 ... php?t=7410 for part #s as a starting point

Try to use the search function - this is the 3rd time I'm posting this info this week. More threads about the same thing increases confusion/research time.

There are also Poly sets you can get for cheaper, as opposed to completely new lower CAs.

As for the Che arms, they are highly recommended and reportedly remove a lot of the slop in the rear end.

Thanks; sounds like a sticky is needed. There are various parts on the Mark VII that are next to impossible to find. If they are available, a part no. and vendor sticky would make sense.

Aren't the rear bushings identical to Fox Mustangs, which are available as mentioned in rubber or urethane.

Phoenix loves his CHE LCA's in his LSC. I'd want them too if I hadn't bought a pair from MM before CHE began making them. Mine are for springs though, the air spring version is a welcome upgrade.

Could we get a sticky on the thread I linked previously, by Beek, about C/A part numbers?
